A series of studies recently published in the prestigious Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found higher levels of homophobia in individuals with unacknowledged attractions to the same sex, particularly when they grew up with authoritarian parents who also held homophobic attitudes. In the university press release, Netta Weinstein, the study's lead author said, "Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves." In the same release, study co-author Richard Ryan added, "In many cases these are people who are at war with themselves and they are turning this internal conflict outward."

1. Self-esteem

A number of published studies have demonstrated that people sometimes use prejudicial attitudes and discriminatory behavior to boost their own self-esteem. When people's self-esteem is threatened, prejudicial actions such as racism appear to restore esteem (at least for some). This is obviously not a socially productive way to gain feelings of self-worth, but it appears to be one way that some people do it.

Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood.

i also just stumbled across this and everyone should read it. it's a suicide letter from a USA veteran of the Iraq war.

22 troops or vets commit suicide everyday.
if you want to honor the troops/vets, read the letter in its entirety.

really makes ya think about who you're calling terrorists and who is being killed in the Middle East and why....if this war was really protecting democracy and overall a noble, positive thing for the world, shouldn't the troops come home feeling proud that they defended us and worked hard/did a good job? Instead they are returning physically and emotionally scared.

why should they have any guilt about killing "terrorists"?

http://gawker.com/i-am-sorry-that-it-has-come...

"The simple truth is this: During my first deployment, I was made to participate in things, the enormity of which is hard to describe. War crimes, crimes against humanity. Though I did not participate willingly, and made what I thought was my best effort to stop these events, there are some things that a person simply can not come back from. I take some pride in that, actually, as to move on in life after being part of such a thing would be the mark of a sociopath in my mind. These things go far beyond what most are even aware of."

"I deployed again, where I put a huge emphasis on saving lives. The fact of the matter, though, is that any new lives saved do not replace those who were murdered"

" How can I possibly go around like everyone else while the widows and orphans I created continue to struggle? If they could see me sitting here in suburbia, in my comfortable home working on some music project they would be outraged, and rightfully so."

"Is it any wonder then that the latest figures show 22 veterans killing themselves each day? That is more veterans than children killed at Sandy Hook, every single day. Where are the huge policy initiatives? Why isn’t the president standing with those families at the state of the union? Perhaps because we were not killed by a single lunatic, but rather by his own system of dehumanization, neglect, and indifference."

How about those terrorists "Palestinians"? Should Israel kick those squatters out of THEIR country? Why do people call incorrectly call it Palestine when their is no such place and never has been? What do we the good people of the world do about the evil scourge of radical Islamic terrorists? We have bigger problems with these evil people than worrying about the 2 party system right now. I agree.
oh, and this is info for ya about the origin of the Palestine/Israel conflict.

straight from the mouths of the people who lived it..... the website is called Jews for Justice of Palestinians.

Veterans committing suicide. Disgraceful. A few reasons for such a high rate:

1. The war was illegal, unplanned and held no altruistic purpose. WWII vets returned home with the pride that they saved the world from Hitler. Iraq vets return home to their leader's ridicule and saved the world from a guy who lived in a dirt hole.

2. The lack of planning created shortages, so most of these suicides come from men who served 2, 3 and 4 tours. They left as 20-year-olds with bright futures. They returned as if time travel had occurred. They realized quickly that they had no education, few marketable job skills, few jobs available, etc.

3. The war is different. The anxiety and trauma experienced in an ambush can be prepared for. The anxiety of awaiting your vehicle to blow up from an IED that is CERTAINLY in your path, is much different.

4. Many of them would've been dead. We are now saving more soldiers with gruesome injuries who, in theaters' past, would've died. The old war adage was to take number killed and wounded would be "times two." Not this war. It's times 10. Every Iraq vet has seen first hand a fellow soldier get arms and legs blown off.

Let's not forget that this country still sends its poor and minorites to fight its wars. They return home to the poverty they left in most cases. In this case, they returned to deeper poverty. 900,000 military members are on food stamps.

Racism is a reflection of ignorance. There are no exceptions. Every study shows the same data - higher the intelligence, the less racism:

I was trying to think of something more unrelated and irrelevant to fighting a war as sexuality. But I couldn't.

Ending don't ask don't tell strengthened our military more than anything we could've done. It's simply ignorant to keep talented, smart soldiers out of the service because of their sexuality. It endangers everyone. There are some true badasses (four Navy Seals have come out as being gay) that I'd rather have on my team than off of it.

Someday, these idiots will learn that skin color and sexuality has no bearing on performance or character.

Here you go. 900,000 military members and their families cash nearly a billion in food stamps on military bases every year.

So much for "supporting our troops."
